A Cancer Patient Skipped Chemotherapy to Meet Kenny Chesney
A Kenny Chesney fan blew off chemotherapy to see him in concert and meet him backstage at a show in Minneapolis.
Diane Grinde was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer two years ago and only given months to live, but she’s still going strong. She made a bucket list, at her daughter’s suggestion, and one of the top items was seeing Kenny in concert. A friend with connections took it one step further and took Diane backstage where she got to hang out with Kenny and take a photo together.
A Minneapolis TV station followed that up with a feature on Diane and she shamelessly led them through her house showing off her Kenny stuff, including a bathroom where the walls are covered with photos of Kenny. As she opened the door to show them she said, ‘I’m sorry. This is not staged. This is for real.’ You’ll have to see it with your own eyes to believe it.
KENNY CHESNEY stepped-up big time for some families who lost children in the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy. It started when Kenny’s friend ANDERSON COOPER told him about one girl in particular who was a huge fan.
